Composer Michael Giacchino returns to Movies on the Radio to present the broadcast premiere of selections from his score to "Star Trek Into Darkness."

This highly anticipated film, which opens on May 17, continues the further big-screen adventures of the classic characters from the original "Star Trek" television series, and once again brings together the talents of Giacchino and director J. J. Abrams. The two have collaborated on several projects, including the television show "Lost" and the successful 2009 film reboot of "Star Trek."

Giacchino has created a colorful, dramatic score for "...Into Darkness," and he presents 22 minutes of it on this show. With Host/Producer David Garland, Giacchino discusses specifics about his score for the film, shares his thoughts about Star Trek's enduring appeal, reveals how a fan's Tweet inspired him to make a last minute revision to his score, and talks about his future projects and much more.
